I've done quite a bit of searching for the solution to this, but none seem to apply to my situation. Being new to WP, there is probably some simple explanation. I have tried most of the fixes suggested for being blocked from commenting, etc. but none seem to help me with posting.
If I copy/paste HTML coded text from my HTML editor to my Write wysiwyg, or to my w.bloggar program, and attempt to post it, I repeatedly get a 412 Error -
The precondition on the request for the URL /wp-admin/post.php evaluated to false. -
If I attempt to post/publish from w.bloggar, I am told "412 - HTTP Post Failed. The Error Number Is The Returned HTTP Status Code."
Near as I can tell, WP is assuming I am a spammer - to my own blog. Again, I am not attempting to post a comment, I am attempting to post an actual entry into my blog.
I had another blog on blogger.com for a few weeks. I have about 10 posts that I am trying to copy over onto my WP blog. I did not want to import my blogger.com blog - just a couple of the posts.
Are there are suggested solutions for how I can change settings regarding WP seeing me as a spammer?
I have already attempted the following:
Changing Options>Discussion settings
Look for Blacklist in phpMyAdmin (no blacklist found, nor do I have any plugins installed for spam, etc.)
Copy/paste HTML to Notebook then to Write or w.bloggar
Copy/paste HTML directly from blogger.com Edit window
Copy/paste HTML directly from "Previous Posts" feature in w.bloggar
There are about 7 hyperlinks in the post I am attempting to make. I wonder if I am just destined to have to hand code them all again, unless someone knows a way around this?
Thank you in advance for any insight you can offer.
